Seven more Concordia student-athletes have been named 2012 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes, the NAIA announced on Friday. Representing Concordia as volleyball honorees are seniors Angela Bruhn, Amanda Kisker, Kim Miller and Lindsea Vaudt and juniors Elise Ortmeier, Jennifer Smith and Morgan Stover. Concordia now has 26 Scholar-Athletes for the fall.

Bruhn, Kisker, Miller and Vaudt are all repeat selections having been named Scholar-Athletes in 2011.

A total of 408 NAIA volleyball student-athletes nationally received the honor. Hastings and Indiana Tech edged Concordia for the most volleyball award recipients with eight apiece.

In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for this honor.

Honorees for football will be released on Dec. 12, a day prior to the NAIA football national championship game.
